Belinda Moore of Morgans Financial has described a $3.3bn takeover bid for GrainCorp as "opportunistic" due to the drought on Australia’s east coast. Meanwhile, GrainCorp directors are seeking more information on the financial backers of Long-Term Asset Partners, whose offer of $10.42 per share represents a premium of 43 per cent to GrainCorp’s closing price on 30 November. LTAP is chaired by Australian businessman Tony Shepherd. GrainCorp shares closed $1.95 higher at $9.25 on 3 December.
